As part of their 47th anniversary tour, Max Creek played a sold-out show on April 14 at the Levon Helm Studios in Woodstock, NY.
Needless to say, MC’s setlist was filled with tributes to Helm and The Band as well as other rock and roll pioneers. Set one was punctuated by a “Fire & Brimstone”> “Welcome Home” jam that ended with a version of Bob Dylan’s “I’ll Be Your Baby Tonight.” They ended their first outing with The Band’s classic “The Weight.”
Set two was even more cover-heavy, with takes on Bo Diddley’s “Who Do You Love” and Levon Helm’s “Growing Trade” as well as “All My Life’s A Circle,” made famous by folk legend and Woodstock, NY regular Pete Seeger. The band also played a rocking version of “Gimmie Some Lovin’” by Spencer Davis Group.
In addition to a lengthy “Windows” jam to open set two, Max Creek served up an extended “Heartbeat”> “Down in the Jungle” segment in the second half.
They encored with one final song by The Band – “Up On Cripple Creek” – before signing off with their own “Signature.”
Max Creek continue their anniversary tour in the Northeast on April 20 in Syracuse, NY. For a full list of tour dates click here.
